Setting date format on EXPORT / conversion of date to timestamp

Looking at the documentation on EXPORT, when exporting a date column
it will automatically use yyyymmdd. One could choose to use ISO
format, but unfortunately the client I'm exporting to can't deal with
this and will only accept dd/mm/yyyy.

Undaunted, I find that one can set the format when exporting a
timestamp. So I thought of casting the date to a timestamp and then
exporting with timestamp format set to dd/mm/yyyy. But one isn't able
to cast date to timestamp.

What way can I get around this? Cast the date to something else first
and then cast it to timestamp? Or should I just give up and do
something like day(datefield) || '/' || month(datefield ) || '/' ||
year(datefield) ?
